It is difficult to say what is wrong, without having the camera in my hands, but perhaps I can describe what went wrong, when you look very close to or better into the lens.
On the glass or plastic parts of the lens elements in a lens, sometimes a mould can grow. For that there must be some moisture inside. When your camera is old, it is possible you once had it outside when it started to rain, or it was in a cold place for a longer time, so some damp could settle inside. If mould is settled on one (ore more) lens element(s) the damage is done. The interchangeable lenses from DSLR cameras can be worth bringing to a repair shop, but the system cameras and point and shoots, special when they are aged, are not worth repairing. Cameras are getting better and better, and in the same time the prices are going down, almost in the same pace.
I don't know how bad the blur is. But if you don't see a thing on the pictures you take, leave it and always put your camera at rest on a clean and dry place. If not the lens, but the pictures are blurred, perhaps something else is going on?

SOURCE: Stuck power button on my Sony cybershot dsc-s600

Hi!
Yes, power buttons do break on these cameras. Contact your local Sony service center and see how much will it cost to replace the top panel. If they ask too much, feel free to contact me at toms.safranovs@gmail.com
I work in a Sony service center.

SOURCE: Sony cybershot DSC-W170 lens malfunction

sounds like you have dust, sand of some type stuck in the retracting lense. Ive found someone to tell me to take out my batterys and SD card, then tap the bottom of the camera on a table top. Replace the batteries and power up. Doing this, I was told it loosens up the debri for the lense to retract to close and to open again.

SOURCE: sony Cybershot DSC-W150,screen reads turn power on and off again

You may not believe this and I hope you haven't spent a lot of money fixing your problem. I read that some people had a different error message coming up on their Sony Cybershot DSC-W150's and in order to fix it, they literally banged the lens against their knee while the lens was out and it re-focused and the error message disappeared. I tried this while my camera was doing exactly what you described above AND IT WORKED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After 2 or 3 firm blows, my LCD screen came up and focused. I can't believe it myself, but I was just desperate enough to try it and VOILA!
Good luck!!

Can I download dsc h5 software that is up to date?


Why would you do that? If the camera is not working perfect, you won't be able to put in any firmware. Updates only can be done when the camera is working perfect. Updates only try to change little flaws i the camera. Most of the time only the professional camera and camera's with interchangeable lenses get updates, to make lens corrections possible. For the H5 Sony never released a firmware update.

My sony dsc-t70 is flashing E:61:00 and will not let me take photos, what is wrong??


Mine was an E61:10....I think. I read on a thread that it was a lens barrel issue that could be fixed with a smack, so I closed the lens cover, turned the camera on and gave it a whack with the bottom of my wife's vintage wine glass....I picked the camera off the carpet and turned it on to find that the error message was no longer active and the wine glass was still in one piece. I rule!

My sony dsc h5 camera lens wont open/focus


This might be a problem with the lenses' mechanism... Maybe you hit the camera (having the lenses extended, eventually). You have to pay a visit to the local service.

And in the future, use the protection that came with the camera (the black cilinder). It protects the lenses and also offers you the possibility to mount the lens cap without having to switch off the camera.

Access Probelm with DSC-W50 camera


I was having the exact same issue with my dsc-w55 and I followed the solution of another post from this site which was: "There is a problem internally with the lens. Likely, the focusing lens is jammed up. The lens will need to be disassembled and fixed, if possible, or replaced. Occasionally, a good "whack" in your hand can fix it. Just don't hit the lens, or lcd; or you can break them. Then there will be more damage." I gave it THREE good "whacks" in the palm of my hand, was careful not to hit the lens or LCD and VOILA! I just shot a few pics with my camera and so far so good. Good luck!
